Some tools for research
Journals that are good to watch (along with impact factors)
Tools that our group uses
- LyX. To install lyx on a Mac do the following.
- Download and install MacTeX from http://www.tug.org/mactex/
- Get a spell checker working on your comptuer. What I typically do is to install MacPorts,
and then do sudo port install aspell aspell-dict-en. This should work. Let me know if it doesn't.
- Install Lyx from the web site above.
- Installation on a PC is similar. Linux is easy---just select and install the lyx package.
- Thales is our server. The IP address is 184.108.40.206. Remember that you can only get to
it from a UVM ip address, thus you'll need to use the UVM vpn
if you are off campus. If you want to map a drive to your home directory, let me know and I'll add
you to the samba users (smbpasswd -a). Once this is done, your shared drive will be located at:
//220.127.116.11/USER/, where USER is your user name.
- Subversion. I think that subversion works by default on Snow Leopard. In windows use TortoiseSVN.
Our svn repository is at located on thales at /home/svn/repo.
Software tools that I have written:
A (less than perfect) MATLAB interface to
This will allow one to solve mixed integer linear programming problems in MATLAB.
To use it uncompress the zip file, travel to the mexosi directory and type "make" in MATLAB.
It will take a few minutes to build the files. I've only tried this on my mac, so not sure if
will work on other platforms. It will take some work to get this to work on windows as it is
hard to work with mex files in windows. If you figure out how to compile this on windows
send me an e-mail.
